My Pomegranate Cosmopolitan Recipe!

The pomegranate cosmopolitan is a great choice for those cosmo lovers who are looking for something slightly different, but still within the realms of a traditional cosmo.

Well, look no further than this cocktail.

The drink itself looks almost identical to a regular cosmo in color thanks to the dark, reddish hue of the pomegranate juice that makes this a standout when it comes to summer drinks. In fact, if you wanted to you could throw all of the ingredients and some ice from your home bar ice maker into a bar blender and make a frozen variation of this drink quite easily.

Cosmo Without Cranberry Juice!

I love cranberry juice in a drink. You can check out my rum and cranberry juice recipe here. It’s light and refreshing. But of course sometimes we all want something different. So this variation has no cranberry juice at all.

The main difference of this drink is the use of pomegranate juice as opposed to cranberry juice. The use of pomegranate makes this drink a healthy choice for the health-conscious. Long-hailed as a fruit that is high in antioxidants, the pom fruit is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, potassium, and polyphenol antioxidants, the latter of which is thought to help neutralize free-radicals that can wreak havoc on cells.

So it’s no wonder why this cocktail is a healthy choice for anyone to drink.

For this recipe, I like to add a little bit of fresh, organic ginger to balance the tart sweetness of the pomegranate juice. You can use ginger juice, or grind a fresh batch yourself.

The cocktail is served in a traditional cosmo or martini glass but can also be served in a highball glass. If using a martini glass, for decoration purposes, wet the rim of the martini glass using water or a lime wedge. Then dip the rim in sugar, and garnish with a lime.
